Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What I liked most about the bridge is that it is not a very busy bridge. It has its own charm and peacefulness standing gracefully over the calm Irrawaddy river of Myanmar.

Suppose if you haven't seen a long steel bridge over a wide river you could be excited? But don't cause a traffic jam on a busy road!

Spanning the Irrawaddy river, at 610 meters, this is quite and impressive structure, our driver for the day just stopped in the traffic, for some piccies, felt strange at first however we weren't the only car, to do so, so. On our cruise from Mandalay to Bagan, we also got to go under her. even more impressive from the water.

This is a good, functional, modern bridge that crosses the Irrawaddy. To me is relevant to mention it as from the opposite side of the bridge, you will get the best pictures of the Sagaing hill!

Built by a Chinese company, completed in 2008 finally this new bridge over the Irrawaddy river helped ease the congestion of traffic on the old narrow Ava (Inwa) bridge. There is a four-lane highway and pedestrian zones on both sides. Bicycles and motorbikes are allowed to use the highway.Trains still use the old bridge.

Locals are happy and proud, as the 1 km long bridge is essential for the economic development of the region. Tourists like the views.

Not to be confused with another bridge over the Irrawaddy about 100 km to the north. On Google maps this Irrawaddy bridge is also called Yadanatheinga.

It's a bridge. It crosses the river. It's definitely functional, rather than beautiful. It's not something that is worth setting out to look at. But if you're on a river cruise you're bound to pass under it.

Reminding me on great arched steel bridges across the Mississippi, this one spans the mighty Irrawaddy. It connects the Sagaing hill with Innwa village south of Mandalay. Both places are well worth visiting, and they require half a day at least.
There's a toll to cross the bridge and from the Innwa side there are great views of the river and Sagaing hill across.

This structure reminded us of the Sydney harbor bridge. Brilliant from the water whilst sailing underneath.

There are two parallel iron bridges of similar design here, taking traffic in opposite directions. The bridges cross the wide Irrawaddy River, a river whose name was well-known to us in our schooldays in Ireland believe it or not! It connects to Ava, a former capital of Myanmar (or Burma as it was then presumably). Indeed, there are three locations around this area, close to each other, which were each former capitals of this country -- Aagaing, Ava and Amarapurna, the latter two now largely composed of just a number of scattered old ruins. Sagaing has become (or maybe it always was) a major religious location filled with monasteries, convents, pagodas, temples and stupas.
